    I have enabled binplace from setenv and specified a location as directed in
    the documentation. However, it does not seem to work.

    can someone confirm the steps needed to make this fire correctly?

  2. Is this about giving the base address to a DLL?

  4. 1) Add MAKEFILE.INC to your project.

    2) In MAKEFILE.INC, add the target named like DoBinPlace and looking like:

    binplace xxx yyy $(TARGET)

    where $(TARGET) is the pathname of the just-built binary.

    3) In the main SOURCES file, do the following:


    This should work.

    thanks maxim

    i do desire the stripping / spliting capability of binplace as well as
    placement .... since it is part of a build process it is important to have
    this kind of workflow from binplace working as expected .. used to work well
    through W2k3 SP1 DDK ... WDK .. well she go poof :(
